“We’re really blessed to have such abundance and beautiful food and we know how important that is and what a difference it makes to people that really need it, and there is no shame in that. We’re happy to be helping out,” said Maggie Macdonald, lead singer with the local rock band, The Organic Humans.

The spooktacular event will feature live dance music from The Organic Humans and friends, including a DJ who will keep the party going all night long. Party goers will hear their favourite Halloween classics, such as the Monster Mash and Thriller. “So attention all zombies: we need you for the flash mob,” Macdonald said.

“This party has been a huge success every year and we are known for really bringing the Halloween fun at the Cawston Hall. The community always puts such effort into fantastic costumes and there is a contest and everyone who wants to struts their stuff on the stage for the contest,” she added.
